Installing JAVA in 'Alfresco Community Edition' VMware

I am evaluating the Alfresco Community Edition Virtual Machine (VMware)

Setup guidance was provided here:

Guidance includes setting up JAVA on the VM:

"Java: To get around redistribution limitations, you will need to go to and download the standard full JDK, version 1.5.0_06. If you install it to a non-default location (/usr/java), you will need to update the path of the JAVA_HOME variable in the /etc/profile and /etc/init.d/alfresco files."

Is there a command line instruction that I would issue (as root) within the VM? Is there a test that I can perform to verify that JAVA was installed correctly? I have tried pointing my web browser at the host machine, however, I think JAVA installation must be performed first.

Any constructive hints, suggestions, are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
